Support Hub Appeal

When Covid-19 hit, Angelina had to shield. She was scared, alone and had no one to turn to, until Evelyn from the Royal Free Charity’s Support Hub picked up the phone.

Being diagnosed with a medical condition is always scary, but during a pandemic, it can be terrifying. Forced to shield, Angelina soon came to understand the reality of isolating with a medical condition – seeing no one, going nowhere, and feeling completely alone for months on end.

Angelina’s mental and physical health got worse, and in her own words, she’d hit rock bottom. In her darkest hour she was referred to the Royal Free Charity’s  Support Hub, and put in touch with a volunteer called Evelyn. She helped Angelina realise that she had so much to live for, but that life-saving support depends on the generosity of people like you. Will you donate today?

Evelyn phoned Angelina once a week as part of the Support Hub’s check in and chat service, listening to Angelina’s concerns.

“I knew I could trust her with my fears and worries. It was a relief to talk to someone who wouldn’t judge. She was a friend when I felt like my entire world had fallen apart. Her care lifted my spirits and she left her footprint in my heart.”

Your support makes these check in and chats possible. There are so many more vulnerable people in our community – whether patients of Barnet, Chase Farm, or the Royal Free hospitals – who are alone, afraid and struggling. They urgently need your help.
